50 "Protesting the War"
Support our troops.
If you are protesting the war, put yourself in the place of our soldiers that are over there fighting. What do you think goes through their minds when they hear that the Americans they are fighting for don’t even support what they are doing?
You say that we are fighting for nothing. Tell that to the soldier that just watched his buddy die or the one that just lost a leg from a mine. If you think we are fighting for nothing, then you tell our soldiers that they are worthless and giving their all for nothing. You tell them that they are fighting and dying for nothing. You tell then that you don’t appreciate the freedoms they are fighting to preserve.
Whether anyone wants to admit it or not, our soldiers are fighting for the same things and beliefs that so many men and boys have fought and died for in the past. What they are sacrificing for are the freedoms of every American in these United States as has been done from the beginning of our great country. Even though there are a lot in the U. S. that say we don’t have the freedoms we used to have and that the U. S. stands for, try living in one of those countries where they don’t have our freedoms. And ask yourself, “Why do we get so many immigrants, legal or illegal, and why are so many people willing to risk their lives just to have the opportunity to live in America?” Go over to one of those countries and complain about the government and see what happens to you.
Our troops need our support here at home as much as we need their support over there. They don’t need to hear that people here at home are protesting them being over there. Even if you don’t like the fact that we are at war, show it by writing your congressman, NOT by standing on the streets with signs and getting on TV and in the newspapers.
